I currently have a sbs server 2003 with exchange running but email is hosted off site. I want to set up a fax server. Our  Phone system has 6 lines with 100 numbers allocated to it. I was hpoing to set up multiple fax numbers on one dedicated phone line. I need to have the server recognise which number the fax has come in an allocated it to the appropriate area depending on the number. Can anyone suggest how i can go about this?

You need to look into getting the phone numbers that you want to have fax functionality onto one of those phone lines, and only one of those phone lines.  Then you need to get a fax modem card and fax software that is capable of decoding the DID infomration from that phone line, so that it will know what phone number the sending fax machine called.  For the hardware my company has used Brooktrout equipment and for software we have used GFI Faxmaker.
